Default M586 6" barrel rear sight blade height?

Anyone have a measurement on the rear sight blade for a 6" M586/686?
Looking to replace one for a friend, don't have a stock 6" to measure at the moment.

Thanks in advance

Thank you, do you know if that holds for all engineering changes?
I see Brownells has that for the -4 and later models.
I don't know what engineering change my friend has, waiting on confirmation on that now.

All the 586 and 686 guns probably have the same factory sights, at least for a given barrel length.
